Best of Bar Carts

There's something about Bar Carts that evokes Old Hollywood Glamour for me. They evoke visions of exclusive parties, with women wearing fur and pearls and men smoking cigars but bring it forward to 2011 and Bar Carts are back. I often talk about putting your gorgeous things on display and a Bar Cart is another trend that allows this. No more storing your bottles in the cupboard, bring them out, lay them with pretty glasses (that you have found at the op shop!) and accompany with some beautiful blooms and maybe a candle or two and you have yourself a special little space! What do you think? Do you have one? What gorgeous trinkets besides a fabulous cocktail shaker and the others I have mentioned, would you include for the most stylish soiree?

  2. you're so right. a bar cart just screams rich and classy! i imagine a butler wheeling in the scotch to a retired hollywood actor and delicately adding in 3 or 4 perfectly-shaped ice cubes with some sterling silver tongs.

  5. What a great image collection. I love that you store all of these on here because we get to see them! But, just in case you are interested, have you also heard of Evernote - may be a good back up. I did a post on it a month or so ago. Anyway, I hadn't thought about it, but it's so true - they do evoke a feeling of old Hollywood glamour!

  9. Thank you for sharing this amazing collection of bar carts! I love them all! I re-did a bar car that I bought for $4.99 at Goodwill and it gets plenty of use!

  10. Pretty to look at. The combo of glass/liquids on wheels in our home would become a toy cart, and spell disaster. (3 year old and 1 year old)

    P.S. Your freckle comment made me smile. Hubs thinks they are cute too. I'll have to take a pic sometime, and post so you'll see why I cover them up. ;)

  13. I love the look of a bar cart, but I'm not sure my house could pull it off. (I guess it's best to actually get moved in first, then decide!)

  18. Yes bar carts for me also evoke that all Hollywood glamour.. make me think of the Jazz era and the Great Gatsby.. I have a small bar currently which I plan to expand and one thing that I would add is a gorgeous ice bucket which I'm still looking for... Great post! :) xo
